I would suggest you do two things.

1. Calibrate the printer
Load some paper into the main tray or photo tray (with photo paper in the later case)
Press Menu on the printer
Press the arrow down until Calibrate printer is selected
Press OK. You should see Print Calibration Page.
Press Start and follow the instructions on the lcd screen to complete the calibration.


2. Clean the print head
Press Menu to display the main menu on the printer
Press the down arrow until Clean Printhead is selected.
Press OK to go to the Clean Printhead menu.
Press Ok to perform a Basic clean.

Now test printing. if there is no improvement do the steps on #2 again but instead of Basic clean, select Deep Clean and press Ok to preform a deep cleaning.

Now try printing again. You may want to perform these steps a few times, you should see improvement on the quality of the print.

lets say if after 5 times of doing both there is no improvement, the printhead might need to be replaced.

It is very easyly replaced on this model. Let me know if the quality doesn't improve and I'll look up a replacement.

Kodak Easy Share 5300


You need to update your Kodak Easy Share and your printer drivers or try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers .

The reason you are facing the problem is because the present drivers are not compatible with Publisher

Kodak 5300 not printing colors


Kodak told me to take the printhead off and reseat it several times, which I did. I then deep cleaned it, calibrated it, and replaced the color cartridge. It didn't solve the problem. Kodak will replace the printhead for free, and after I return the defective one, will send me a free color and black cartridge. Very nice service. I've been very happy with the 5300.
